River Watch

The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge across the Missouri River
from Omaha, Nebraska to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
An early morning walk along the river in Omaha reveals a swollen, turbulent Missouri which has been overrunning its floodplains this summer with disasterous effects to farmlands and communities.

I know the flooding has made for lots of trouble but this photo is so nicely framed by the trees forming an archway as the bridge swoops across the frame.

Wow, this bridge is so unique ! It looks just like some celest snake crossing the river... Very nice sharing indeed !

Un site extraordinaire, c'est sûr, mais la photo le met en valeur ! Très beau cadrage !

The water is looking rather mighty and getting too close to the bridge. But what an awesome looking bridge that is!

Awesome shot. We are able to build magnificent bridges to cross rivers but we still can't tame the rivers.

WOW!!! This is one fabulous footbridge. I would love to walk it and look over the sides....water for as far as you can see. So pretty. The undulating bridge, the sunlight on the water and the clouds in that blue sky make for one lovely capture. Genie

What an interesting bridge, linking the two states.
My mother was born in Omaha because it was the closest hospital to her family's farm in Iowa giving this bridge special meaning to me.

This is a gorgeous shot! Well worth getting up early for! We recently visited Omaha and I fell in love with the town! I just loved it! I posted this bridge not too long ago!

Now that's a really cool bridge! I love how you photographed it too. Enjoy the day.

The bridge looks curved in the middle. Is it an illusion?
